    There are a few wedding events every decade that anyone in their right mind—and especially anyone in a certain social circle—would be desperate to attend.Rupert Murdoch’s recent nuptials to Jerry Hall fit the bill, as did another London wedding (the one involving the future King of England) several years before. The likes of Sting, Jack Dorsey, and Emma Watson made their way to the middle of a Big Sur forest to see Sean Parker tie the knot, and a whole bunch of Silicon Valley titans were likely crushed when they didn’t make the cut for Mark Zuckerberg’s surprise backyard wedding. Scoring an invitation to Tom Cruise’s Italian wedding to Katie Holmes became a sport. Later, so did landing one to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’sown Florentine affair.

    But there was perhaps no hotter ticket in 2010 than Chelsea Clinton’s 500-person, several million-dollar wedding in upstate New York. Bill Clinton was losing weight to look in tip-top form for the big day. Oprah Winfrey and Barbra Streisand were rumored to attend (they didn’t, but Madeleine Albright was there). There was a no-fly zone around the event, for goodness sake. This was the wedding, so of course Donald Trump wanted to be there.

    Trump, now somewhat infamously, had invited Bill and Hillary to his own third wedding years earlier. According to an excerpt shared with Politico's Playbook from Joe Conason’sforthcoming biography of Bill, Man of the World: The Further Endeavors of Bill Clinton,Trump expected an invitation in return. “The real estate mogul was the sort of person who, though not an actual friend, still aspired to attend Chelsea’s wedding, which he clearly considered a prestigious event,” Conason writes. “Having given Bill Clinton free access to his northern Westchester golf club, Trump National, where he proudly hung photos of the former president-and had even cleared the links once for the Clintons to play on Bill’s birthday, Trump may well have felt they owed him.”

    Trump was reportedly so convinced that he deserved to be there that he called Clinton advisor Doug Band seeking advice. “I’m supposed to be at the wedding, Doug,” Trump said, according to Conason. “But I didn’t receive the invitation, and I need to know where to go.” He writes that Band told him to reach out to Chelsea herself for directions—something the billionaire apparently didn’t go so far as to do.

    A spokesperson for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But it is good to know that Trump, transgressor of societal norms, politeness, and often, general decency, draws the line somewhere, and apparently it stops at wedding crashing.

    Maybe the Clintons will invite him to their Inaugural Ball. That would be a nice gesture.
